Open to: Members & volunteers

Accessibility: Not wheelchair accessible

Description: This is a very scenic 2.5-3 mi hike on easy trails in Joaquin Miller Park in the Oakland hills. The environment changes from mixed Bay to Chaparral to deep Redwoods as we traverse the Sequoia Bayview and the Big Trees trails. We’ll walk back along the ridge, with sweeping views across the Bay. 

Where to meet: In front of the parking garage at the Chabot Space & Science Center

What to bring: Dress warmly for variable weather conditions. Bring water, snacks, and hiking poles if you normally use them on hikes. Poles can be helpful for balance and to maneuver on any uneven segments on the trails. Poles can also help you climb over puddles if it's been rainy (Celeste will bring an extra set if you would like to try them). 

Directions: From Hwy 13 in Oakland, take the Joaquin Miller Rd. exit and drive east (uphill) on Joaquin Miller Rd. to the stoplight at the top. Turn left onto Skyline Blvd and go 1.5 mi to the Chabot entrance on the right. Park in the free parking lot and meet outside the garage entrance. Restrooms are available upon request inside the Chabot Center. 

Carpools: For carpools write to the hikers email group at and state where you need a ride from. You may also contact Celeste  at for possible pickup at Rockridge BART
